Hard times in Canaan

Like many churches, families and homes, Canaan Baptist Church has experienced its share of financial difficulties. Though Canaan Baptist's financial landscape is looking up, Dr. Scott Caudill, senior pastor of CBC, remembers the lean times when he began his ministry six years ago.
